Spectacular ocean view with a great location! El Faro is a luxury condo complex with all the amenities of home plus the luxuries of a 5 star hotel. The Condo complex is located right on the beach and one block from the famous 5th Avenue walking street where you can find numerous restaraunts and lots of shopping! The infinity pool at El Faro can not compare to any other pool found in Playa. Our condo has 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The masterbedroom has a king bed and the second bedroom has 2 single beds that can be converted to a king if needed. We also have a futon that can be converted into a bed in the back entrance. The condo has a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, microwave and stainless steel appliances. There is a BBQ is located on the terrace where you can sit, relax and enjoy the fabulous view while enjoying a cocktail. We also have wi-fi right inside the unit. Great for families or couples!

We have a commercial Heating and Air conditioning business in Saskatchewan Canada. We have 3 children who keep us busy with hockey, dance and school activities. We all love El Faro and Playa!
Lorelei purchased this condo in 2011
We bought this property because we loved the location of El Faro. Everything that you could need is within walking distance--restaraunts, shopping, excursions, bars and more. The beach out front is perfect for relaxing in a beach chair, building sandcastles, playing catch with a football and more. The ocean is amazing for swimming, boogey boarding, or even snorkelling.
We love the fact that we can go back to our condo and make a snack or lunch if we choose to or we can walk down the beach to find many restaraunts. It is nice to have the option to do either! We have vacationed other locations and we love that Playa is unique in that you can actually walk out of the resort and find anything you are looking for!
We are here right now on 7/2/16 at 5:51. Shower head just fell off and almost hit my kid in the head. Master shower leaks so bad that water was all over floor in bedroom next to bathroom. Asked for face towels and was told they don't have any. Sky Tv sound does not work in master bedroom. Water running low and was told we would need to pay $35 pesos for more water. $35 pesos is not a lot of money but it is the principal of the matter. Pool needs more water. Front desk can't help with anything as we need to go through some rental company. A/C does work good once it gets going. Good value for the money compared to other condos but would like some help sometime.
This is the 2nd year we have stayed in this condo at El Faro and we love it. The location is perfect and the condo is very clean and comfortable! The owners make sure you have everything you need for a great vacation! Everything you could want is in walking distance. Shopping, great bars and restaurants and beautiful white sand beaches.
I had the pleasure of staying here for 4 nights this past January and would love to do it again. The owner was great with communication and a pleasure to do business with. The room itself is flawless with a breathtaking balcony view. I stayed here with 2 other friends and we had more than enough room between the 2 separate bedrooms. The location within Playa del Carmen is outstanding as it is a short walk away from great nightlife venues such as Blue Parrot. The beach area is really nice and its very convenient to have waiter service since Wicky's restaurant is connected to the property. There are also plenty of dining options withing walking distance. I would highly recommend this room to anybody traveling to this area.
The information and photos about this property were accurate. The condo was spotless and clean and very well maintained. The beds were super comfy which is not always the case in Mexico. The owners of this condo were most helpful with information about the condo facilities, the resort and the surrounding area. We visited PDC with our extended families. The resort was perfect for every member of our family from the 2 year old to grandparents. The kid-friendly pool was safe for our smallest family members. The beach area was wonderful - there were no rocks or fishermen's boatlines to trip over. Restaurants and stores were steps away from this centrally located resort. The Starbucks on the corner (a block away) was also a great hit!! We enjoyed the burgers and nachos from Wicky's restaurant at the resort. We also enjoyed the shrimp cocktails at La Tarraya, the noodle dishes at Babe's Bar and Noodles, breakfast at La Cueva del Chango, and the seafood plate at La Mission. I would definitely recommend this condo and resort to friends and family.
Just arrived back from an amazing week at this beautiful condo. I can`t say enough about the owners, location and the staff at El Faro. There biggest concern was to make sure we were happy and that we had everything we needed. We travelled with 3 boys 14,11 and 10 and there was more than enough room for all of us. This property is located in the best spot possible in Playa, close to EVERYTHING and the biggest bonus was it`s right on the beach!!!! DO NOT NEED A CAR.
Can`t wait to go back next year, big thanks again Lorelei......
